Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama launches Opera 360

The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama (RWCMD) is launching a new on-line course, Opera 360 in September 2022. Opera 360 will present short courses for anyone who has a deep love of opera and wants a strong connection with opera that goes beyond appreciation whatever their stage of life, as well as launching a full Opera 360 Masters, designed to develop the skills of those wanting to work in the industry in non-performance roles. The masters will incorporate all the modules in the shorter courses.

Opera 360 will be an industry-led, digital course that invites opera lovers, arts professionals and students alike to gain unrivalled, behind the scenes knowledge of the industry with expert guidance given by those who make opera. It will offer detailed investigation into both the artistic and administrative practices of the global opera business. 

As an on-line initiative Opera 360 will be available to people from all over the UK and internationally. Opera 360 is in association with the David Seligman Opera School at RWCMD.  It aims to provide a world-class training environment for those wishing to pursue a career in opera working in partnership with Welsh National Opera (WNO). Guest lecturers will include Aidan Lang, general director of WNO, David Jackson, artistic director of Cardiff Singer of the World, soprano Susan Bullock, and conductor Carlo Rizzi who is president of the David Seligman Opera School and conductor laureate at WNO. 

Carlo Rizzi commented, "Opera is the most complex of art forms bringing live music, theatre, design and story-telling together. When audiences see and listen to an opera, few are aware what lies behind each performance and learning about this through first-hand experience is a wonderful new offer from RWCMD.
